Some eco-tours will take you on an exploration of what exists in the rainforest–the beauty in the landscape, in the trees, or on the water–but what about under the Earth? The Rio Secreto in the Yucatan Peninsula holds some spectacular secrets. But in order to uncover those secrets you have to follow the winding river where it flows.
Your reward is spectacular caves decorated with stalagtites, stalagmites, helictites, dropstones, flowstones and columns. Part of the Riviera Maya, the underground river is the longest and most spectacular of the region. Admire these stunning geological structures that surround you as you dive in numerous pools of crystal clear water. These crystalline pools provide more than 400 feet of straight line visibility. Sunlight streams in through several entrances creating a truly magical effect.
Rio Secreto is a unique place in the world and one that isn’t explored often. That is because until recently the cavern systems in the Riviera Maya where the Rio Secreto runs have been flooded and accessible only to a few specialized cave divers. These days anyone can explore these special geological characteristics that are unique to the Yucatan Peninsula.
The Riviera Maya stretches along the coastline of the Carribbean Sea of the Yucatan Peninsula for 72 miles. Located in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo the Riviera Maya begins south of the Cancun International Airport and ends at Punta Allen, a small fishing village within the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve.
